Tribal Council seeks KNT board members

Tribal Council is looking for five people to serve on the Kah-Nee-Ta resort board of directors. Kah-Nee-Ta used to be under the Gaming and Resort board that also oversaw Indian Head Casino.

It made sense to have one board for the casino and resort when, for instance, the two were housed at Kah-Nee-Ta. Now they should be separate to reflect the circumstances, Tribal Council decided.

The five KNT board positions are classified as I, II and III. Class I will be an individual whose term of office will expire on December 31, 2017.

Class II will be two individuals, with the terms ending on December 31, 2018. And class III will be two individuals with terms expiring at the end of 2019.

A person cannot serve on the KNT board who is a member of Tribal Council, an employee of the resort; or while serving on either the Credit or Indian Head Casino boards.

“The business and affairs of Kah-Nee-Ta shall be managed and controlled by the board of directors,” according to the directorship notice.

The regular board meetings will be held no less frequently that quarterly. And the board can call other regular meetings from time to time.

If you are interested in serving on the board, a letter of interest and resume should be submitted by October 27. The submission can be mailed to Secretary-Treasurer, PO Box 455, Warm Springs, OR 97761.

Authorization letter will be mailed to all applicants for a criminal and credit background check. The information is confidential.
